OTWC Challenge #21

Look at all the bright, beautiful colors that are in the inspiration photo for the newest challenge at Off The Wall Craftiness! You just can not help but smile! This is Kim's 21st challenge already.
I kept my card on the simple side this week, but I am really pleased with how it came out. I found a scrap of striped paper in my stash that fit the color scheme and added some pink stitched ribbon, to set it off. Then I strategical place dots of glue on a bright flowered transparency from K&Co. I placed gems of different colors in the centers of the flowers for sparkle. I found a chipboard oval and presto I had a card for a new baby girl. The inside sports another strip of the strip paper and a simple congratulations. It always feels so good when you can use some of those forgotten goodies that have been neglected!

You never know, I might be back again! Thanks for taking a look. I appreciate each and every one of you.

So adorable Mary Anne! I love the bright colors for babies instead of the pastels, they are cute but they get old working with over and over :) Thanks for playing and good luck!!!
